january in molly’s cafe: poetry and sri lankan curry

first, happy new year!  molly’s cafe was closed on new year’s eve, as i prefer not to work that night, but perhaps next year i will host a gathering.  i went to a boring party, but before that, as i was waiting for my daughter on galata square, i saw a little bit of the lunar eclipse.  what a night!  lunar eclipse, full moon, new year’s eve.  i was on galata square for the countdown, which was very cool.

i am still waiting for confirmation on some events for january, but i have two special days scheduled.  the first one is this friday, jan 9 at 4:00.  duff plunkett duff plunkett will be reading poetry in his inimitable style..  for this, he wrote:
Mister duff as you’ve never seen him before!!

how divine
is the divan
in the twilight
with kadayif
and you!

so, you get the idea!  it will be very entertaining.

i am waiting for two musicians to confirm, so stay tuned for more events at molly’s cafe!
